Captain Wes Morgan tips Foxes to bounce back

Captain Wes Morgan believes Leicester are capable of getting back to winning ways against Wolves on Saturday but admits it will be tough.

The Foxes head to Molineux sitting eighth in the Premier League and eager to respond after successive losses.

After falling to a shock 2-1 defeat to Newport County in the FA Cup earlier this month they were unable to lift themselves when facing Southampton in the Premier League last time out.

They have tasted defeat on three occasions in their last four outings across all competitions and are in danger of slipping down the table.

Saturday’s trip to Wolves, who have also struggled for consistency over the past few months, provides an opportunity to get back on track for Claude Puel’s men.

Morgan accepts that recent performances have not been good enough but is optimistic about their chances of claiming a result on the road this weekend.

“It’s two losses against two teams we’d expect to do well and get results against,” he said.

“We’re facing a tough team in Wolves, they’re in good form and we know it’s not going to be easy.

“But our results on the road have not been too bad, so hopefully we can get back to winning ways. It’s a big game.”

Leicester can be backed at 3.40 to claim a third successive away win in the league, having recently seen off Chelsea and Everton, while Wolves are priced at 2.30 to take all three points and the draw is available at 3.20.
